Event Details

Please join us for our second annual Mental Health Movement 2K | 5K | 10K Run-Walk! New this year, as you will have just noticed, we are adding 2K and 10K events! These two new routes were added to increase inclusiveness across all levels of ability. All three events will be chip timed.

We, at Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health Authority (NeMCMHA), aim to bring awareness to mental health in our four-county catchment area of Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency, and Presque Isle counties, while also reducing the stigma of mental health.

These events can be completed by anyone! All routes are wheelchair and stroller accessible. You can try for a personal best or simply enjoy the beauty of our river routes! The 2K and 5K events are available to all runners and/or walkers, while the 10K is geared towards runners. All participants will receive a race bib with chip timers to allow for accurate timing.

Registration ends at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, 2024. There will be no same day registration. Early bib/packet pickup will be available on Friday, May 17 at NeMCMHA (further details to follow). Day of bib/packet pickup will open at 7:30 a.m. Please arrive and pick up your packet at least 30 minutes before your event is scheduled to begin.

Our new 10K Run will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by our 2K and 5K at 9:00 a.m.

All participants will receive a finisher medal and gift. Top finishers will receive awards.
